Is Hillary Clinton For Marijuana Legalization?
So everybody talking about Hillary Clinton running for presidency. My concern is what’s her stand on legalizing marijuana for the masses. I think Hillary is being cautious with her stand on marijuana legalization.
Clinton was quoted during a CNN town hall meeting June of 2014 “On recreational, you know, states are the laboratories of democracy. We have at least two states that are experimenting with that right now. I want to wait and see what the evidence is”
Hillary views on medical marijuana is “I don’t think we’ve done enough research yet. Although I think for people who are in extreme medical conditions and have anecdotal evidence that it works, there should be availability under appropriate circumstances. But I do think we need more research, because we don’t know how it interacts with other drugs. There’s a lot we don’t know.” What she failed to say is that there is a lot we do know about medical marijuana. If anyone would know the true benefits of marijuana its Hillary Clinton. I agree we do need more research but the current research is sufficient evidence for marijuana healing capabilities.
Currently the government is taking a back seat to marijuana legalization. There letting states decided what’s best for their particular communities and neighborhoods.
Marijuana support is still on the rise. The 2010 Pew Research Center survey found that 73 percent of American voters support medical marijuana, including 80 percent of Democrats.
Clinton has decided to approach this issue with a lets wait and see stance. I don’t think this is a good idea for an election. You have almost 80% of the people in support of marijuana in on form or another. I think if she don’t take a strong stance either for or against marijuana. She is just leaving too much room on the table, for someone to come in with full support of medical marijuana and gain 80% of voters support. What she needs to do is grab Bill and smoke a blunt so she can remember why the people want legalization. Full out support for legalization would gain support all across the board.
